A Duo of 1976 German RieslingBy
1976 was quite a banner year for Rieslings in Germany. I have heard more than one winemaker over the years say it was so ideal alot of winemakers didn’t know how to handle what this fabulous vintage offered. These two 1976 Auslesen, however, were fabulous! The Von Buhl was glorious, rich, lush & the once apparent residual sugar had changed into a much more tactile, creamy sensation. The Dr. Fischer, in comparison, although higher toned, full of pedigree & much more refined, this particular bottle is starting to get what I call charcoal notes, which tells me it is time to drink up. In both cases, what an experience!
